University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar

Based in the home-town of German Classicism and rich in tradition, the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar is an institution of higher education for young musicians, academics, and ambassadors of music from across the entire globe. It is indebted to the legacy of Franz Liszt, who successfully combined in his person composer, virtuoso, ensemble musician, pedagogue, and pensive philosopher. The institution aims to compete with the world’s most renowned music academies.

Musikgymnasium Schloss Belvedere

The Musikgymnasium, which is a UNESCO project school, serves as a centre of excellence for the University of Music FRANZ LISZT Weimar in a tradition going back to the days of Franz Liszt himself.
